Saturday was so much better than Friday!! Not only has that little nervous knot gone away from the bottom of my stomach but I actually enjoyed myself. Crazy, I know! On Friday, I was just so anxious for the phone to ring, I really don’t remember a dang thing about what I did, ah well. For breakfast, I wanted to switch it up a bit so I had a soft boiled egg, 1 slice of ezekiel bread w/some Mighty Maple PB and 1/2 of a small banana and what would breakfast be without a morning cup of coffee? Not a breakfast of mine, that’s for sure! Hans took my breakfast photo this morning with the camera on his phone because I was too lazy to go look for the good camera and I was hungry! So sorry for the yellow-tinted, ugly breakfast photo!
Ya know how I said the other day that the kitchen looked like it had been hit by a tornado? Well, I kind of lied. The entire house looked like it has been hit by a tornado. Seeing as my mom and brother got back from Texas yesterday night, I spent the entire morning doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen (again..why do I do this to myself?),dishes, and all that jazz. I stopped cleaning to sit down with my yoga mat and practice a little. I practiced on my own today, and I have to admit it was pretty difficult. Sometimes when I practice on my own it comes naturally and sometimes I have to think pretty hard, and today I had to think pretty hard to get a good practice in. Oh well, I am not a yoga teacher yet! Good thing I have yoga class at the yoga studio soon! I am already looking forward to it!! After yoga, I had the most delicious wrap that I have ever made! It was seriously, so good! I took 1 block of Italian-herb spiced tofu, a handful of Romaine lettuce, half of a tomato, 1/4 of a slice of provolone and wrapped it up in a Flat Out with a thin layer of Garlic hummus! Oh, if only I could relive the experience of eating this wrap! Delish!!

This afternoon, we went up to Barnes and Noble to see the Duggar’s!! Haha, yes.. THE Duggar’s, the ones with 18 kids and the show on TLC! I am intrigued by this family because they are just so odd! I am very liberal so their lifestyle just seems weird to me, but hey.. to each their own. If they are happy with their lives, then that is all that really matters, I try not to judge 🙂 Anyway, some of our friends are like obsessed with them for some reason, I think just because they are so different? Who knows. Every time they drive back to Fayetteville, Arkansas to go back to school from Tulsa they try to find where the Duggar’s live, haha yeah stalkers but whatever it’s hilarious! Anyway, the Duggar’s seriously looked like an entire football team out there signing books at Barnes and Noble, and I have never seen more people wearing long, jean dresses in my life! Haha.. it was an awkward afternoon.
After our little event at Barnes and Noble, we got invited to a low-key dinner party! It was great to catch up and be around so many funny people, and entertaining to say the least! The friend that put on the dinner party is the same who is obsessed with the Duggar’s so it was definitely an interesting time!
To start, I snacked on some carrots and celery with a tiny bit of spinach dip.
For the main course, I had some mushroom soup and a half of a slice of ‘wheat’ bread. They called it wheat bread but I have no doubt it was ‘white’ wheat bread, haha if that makes any sense? It was not dense at all, it was like white bread that was just called wheat bread but hey, it tasted good dipped into my soup!
And of course, I can never turn down dessert! The dinner party was to celebrate some March birthdays so I had a small slice of a fantastic carrot cake! I am not a fan of carrot cake, but this one tasted divine and it was very moist. Hans even liked it and he always prefers salty over sweet.
After dessert, I had an amaretto sour and called it a night!
This morning, I went for the most glorious run of my entire life! It was absolutely amazing. After this run, I am so determined to become a better runner. I don’t know how far or how long I ran, I just ran until I decided to turn around and run home. It felt so liberating! And I ran the entire time without having to walk, typically unheard of for me. I think I am going to set up a training program but I have no idea how I should do this? Any ideas? Thanks bloggies! Let me just say, I am more than happy that I got over my fear of putting myself out there and starting a blog! I am so glad that I did! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
